Bethel is a 28 year old church planting ministry and a registered national NGO, advancing God's kingdom among the unreached hindu poor villagers. We train national christian workers and support them with a small monthly grant. We work among youth and Children. We provide missions needs.

But Now India has changed seriously:

1. Under the new leadership, the christian haters are let loose against the activities of THE CHURCH and missionary endeavours. The laws are changed in such a way that no funds from over seas could support Indian ministries. And naturally we suffer. We need God's hand to sustain us.

2. Kindly Pray for our family as avalanches after avalanches are falling and satan seems to take the upper hand over us. We live by faith and walk on our knees. Kindly Pray please!

It is very sad that the India Government has taken persecution against Christians that hurt its own citizens. The Church I am attending has a couple doing Ministry in India who also are faced with persecution.

I will indeed pray for your NGO and the persecution faced.

On your website, did you mean to 'carity' (or is there an 'h' missing from charity?

May the Lord bless with His storehouse of Blessings from Heaven. Thank you for your post here alerting us all of the persecution faced by Christians in India.

Thank you very much for praying for us. We are not bowing down to persecutions but will press on in full throttle by the daily anointing of the Holy Spirit. Kindly Keep in touch for our monthly news updates. I am glad that some mission from your end are already working in India. Unless they have FCRA to receive your support they will find it extremely difficult.

Yes, the FCRA renewal application was approved for the small ministry at my Church. There were so many cancelled though -- even those based on prior approval. All are having to jump through new hurdles, since last year. Then even with approval, persecution is faced (to what we were explained, the gov has limited the amount of financial aid allowable).

Definitely holding your ministry in prayer. It is a blessing to know there are Christian ministries like yours standing up, despite persecutions faced in India. Thank you for sharing this with us here.

Dear Heavenly Father, prayer is sent for our Brothers and Sisters in India who work to spread the Gospel in a land where persecution against Christians is so great. We hear of the mistreatment and abuse to Christians and it causes tears that do not diminish. May you protect and bless the hands of the Christians in India. May these blessings be 10-fold my own for the effort and what is faced! Dear Lord, our faith is not weak and we know your hedge of protection is Almighty and reaches all. So, we pray for the safety and for the government of India alike. That a softening of officials hearts might take place and that India's Citizens needs might be met. May never a child hunger. May never tears overwhelm. We thank you for your love and endurance in our lives. We thank you for joy that surpasses all human understanding even in the worse of storms. We thank you for Brethren across the nations. We ask prayer for Arvind T. and his wife and the struggles they face knowing that You Lord are the author of life and Your Plans Greater than human imagination or invention. Protect and cover us. Through Christ, Amen.
